Margherita Organic Pizza - Healthy Cooking!

Friday, February 22, 2013
One of my weaknesses in life is Pizza. It's easy, quick, cheap and most of the time not good for you. We make healthy pizza's at home quite often. I am generally picky about pre-made crusts and when I do buy them, I always get thin crust. I was very excited to try out Rustic Crust Organic Pizza Crust.

Upon receiving my package from Rustic Crust, I found two packages of pizza crust (one was a whole grain organic pizza crust, the other was original organic pizza crust) and a three pack of pizza sauce. I instantly knew what I was going to make, my take on a margherita pizza. I don't like slices of tomatoes so I prefer to use a rich sauce and a ton of buffalo mozzarella and basil.

Healthy Cooking - Margherita Pizza
1 Rustic Crust Organic Pizza Crust
1 package of All Natural Old World Pizza Sauce
4 garlic cloves thinly sliced
7 thin slices of mozzarella cheese (slice thinner than what you see below)
7 large fresh basil leaves

Bake at 450 10-12 minutes

What I enjoyed most about this crust before I tried it was that it was sturdy before baking. I wasn't concerned with it cracking or breaking on me.  I sliced up 4 garlic cloves very thin, sauteed them in a little olive oil and added them to the sauce. After slicing the cheese and gathering the largest basil leaves from my plant, I concocted this master piece:
Rustic Crust Organic Pizza Crust has instructions on the package of baking a pizza at 450 for 10-12 minutes. It was the perfect amount of time to melt the cheese and make the crust nice and crispy. The ending result was perfect although I did go a little overboard on the cheese.
My boyfriend mentioned on multiple occasions how much he enjoyed the pizza and he was surprised to find out that it was a healthy pizza. Click the photo below to get $1 off a Rustic Crust Organic Pizza Crust!
